Pakistan has recently seen the launch of the country’s first-ever electric bike named JE-70. The manufacturer Jolta company has launched the bike as an alternative to the fuel run 70cc and 125cc bikes popular in Pakistan.

After much speculations, the company has announced the price of its CD70 bike.

As per media reports, the launching rate of this bike, JE-70, is Rs82,500. Furthermore, it can travel up to 80 kilometers in Eco Mode, while it travels up to 60 kilometers in Turbo Mode. The bike has 1000W Power with a top speed of 60 km/hour on a flat surface.

It is worth mentioning that according to the Atlas Honda website, the CD70 costs Rs84,500 and the CD70 Dream costs Rs90,500.

According to the CEO of Jolta Electric Usman Sheikh, the bike has been well received in the market, but didn’t share any figures.

Comparing the old with the new

Since the entire media is wondering the cost benefit analysis on buying CD 70 vs JE 70, GVS has made it easier.

If we compare the Jolta E70 with a 70cc Honda, the former has a maximum speed of 60 kilometers per hour and the latter can go up to 90 km/h. The company claims that this is the only measure at which the e-bike lags the regular bikes.

It has come in various models with different power terrains and different maximum speeds. The bike comes in seven different models namely JE-70, JE-70 L, JE-70 D, JE-100 L, JE-125 L, JE-Scooty, and JE-Sports Bike.

As of yet, the first one named JE 70 has been introduced in the market. The company claims that the JE 70 can do a range of 80 Kms in eco mode, and 60 Kms in turbo mode.

The motor power is 1.5KW or 1500 Watts, which is supported by a 30 AH Lithium/dry battery which has three months warranty and would work for approximately two years.

It is worth mentioning that battery replacement would cost the user Rs20,000, which is arguably a high price, but if the battery lasts for two years as the company claims, it is a good bargain.

The top speed of the vehicle on an inclined surface would be 10-20 km/hr, and 60 km/h on a flatter road. One charge would take around 2 to 3 hours and would consume two units of energy for a single charge.

Like every other electric vehicle out there, the e-bike does not have clutches and gears.

National Sales Head Muhammad Suhail Khan told SAMAA Money that their JE 70, which exactly looks like a 70cc motorcycle is priced at Rs82,500.
